Welcome to my website!

I have recently defended my PhD at Princeton University's History Department and am about to begin a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Notre Dame's Medieval Institute. My interests all concern premodern processes of large-scale change, crisis and decline. 

You can learn more about my research in general, or more about one of the specific research projects I am currently involved with on this site: my environmental history research on the interactions between premodern societies and their environment, my dissertation-related project on eleventh century East Roman (Byzantine) social history, my digital humanities project FLAME which investigates the late antique Mediterranean economy, and my interests in historical memory

Please feel free to contact me for any questions or comments you might have!
